The pictured wine is now sold out, but we are pleased to bring you for the first time a stunning vineyard, planted high above the valley floor between Rutherford and Pritchard Hill by the Bettinellis, the Lowrey Vineyard. The Basalt Ledge piece sits on a rocky outcropping with its back to Pritchard Hill. The rare hillside site picks up the mineral aspect of the site, and the tight spacing creates tension and concentration in the wine. It is ripe, dense, and powerful. Extremely expressive terroir is on full display and gorgeous black and red cherries, mineral, cigar, and fine grain tannins create a new Napa Cabernet experience you’ve probably never had before.
